Jim Perry Memorial Service

Retired LAFD Captain Jim Perry tragically lost his life in a traffic accident near his Nevada home on December 3, 2009. Jim was not only the editor of The Fireman's Grapevine magazine and The Los Angeles Firefighter newspaper (for 40 years) but a friend, colleague and mentor to many, including me. A memorial was held for Jim on December 19, 2009 at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center in Los Angeles. Please visit www.uflac.org for more on Jim Perry. RIP brother Jim.  Unfortunately a prior commitment forced me to leave the service early.  Click on the image above to see the entire gallery.
